NICU Praised in New Book


Journalist and mother Sarah DiGregorio praises the UI NICU in her new book, “Early,” (Harper Collins, 2020) a deeply personal study of premature birth in the United States.

Inspired by her own harrowing experience giving birth to her premature daughter, the book is a compelling and empathetic work that combines memoir with rigorous reporting to tell the story of neonatology—and to meditate on the questions raised by premature birth.

Ms. DiGregorio also speaks about the book and her experiences on NPR’s On Point podcast.

Specifically, page 188 of the book makes some exemplary comments at the NICU at the UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
